"Where Words Grow On Trees"

Youth Tube is launched! And it’s Covered in Sunshine!

The new Youth Tube site is launched on The plum Tree. We hope to encourage early literacy and children’s creativity. An awesome team of people will be participating to ensure the venture receives the success it deserves.  

Marta Pelrine-Bacon has agreed to be our Head of Art for Youth Tube. Tonia Marie Harris will be assisting with project coordination. We have art and reviews from Harri Romney and reviews from Deb Hockenberry.  Charlene Bostick has added to our art gallery. Jodie Brownlee will add reviews and Janet Young Beasley is making a fabulous new video for us.  Jorg Bankowski has supplied a music track entitled ‘Covered in Sunshine.’ And that is how we feel: covered in sunshine.

On this site, we will be featuring children’s art, poetry, stories, children’s authors, reviews. We will even (when we get going) feature children’s song writing and video-making. From time-to time, experts will come and visit to lend advice and encouragement.

Our first project will be led by Marta. She is calling for children’s art. The theme is ‘Self.’ We are looking for self-portraits, and encouraging children to write a few lines about how their portrait best describes them; basically, how do they perceive themselves?Age group up to 12 years. Marta will post more details to follow.

I have really enjoyed creating this idea and this site. It has been a lot of behind-the-scenes work. I love the idea of the forever innocence of childhood.  We want to co-create a beautiful world into which our children (and grandchildren) might venture and express themselves.  We want them to feel proud of their contributions, to feel like little stars appreciated and valued. To be honest, aren’t children our inspiration, the voices of the future? We hope to help them to allow soul into life and pass on to their children the gift of imagination.

  1. Wonderful! I’ll do what I can to spread the word. There’s a whole community of home schoolers out there who would be a great target market for this site.

    Covered in sunshine! How appropriate! That’s how kids make me feel… This is exciting, Niamh. I Tweeted this and will be posting it on my TimeLine. I’ll see if my webmaster can post the lovely logo on my site, too, or should I just post the plum icon?

    Thanks for sharing.

    Hugs – Betty

    This is a great opportunity for children to express themselves in their own unique ways and through art and writing – a wonderful idea. Very best of luck with it all!
